HOMMAGE AU SAUVAGE:
un portrait d'Henri Pousseur
[2005, 52', Dominique Lohlé et Guy Marc Hinant]
More than fifteen years ago, the Swiss Paul Sacher Foundation, that preserves the archives of music of the twentieth century, sends out musicologist Dr. Albi Rosenthal to Henri Pousseur. Discovering the richness of the documents preserved by Pousseur, this musical antiquarian gets crazy.

This film is about the fourth and most recent trip to Basel.
